Latest reports informed that the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua will host a New Year’s memorial service for the families of those killed in a building collapse at his Lagos mega church.
According to Vanguard newspaper report online, the spokesman of SCOAN, Patrick Iwelumor, informed that no fewer than 44 South Africans have arrived Lagos to attend the ceremony.
It would be recalled that about 116 people were reported to have lost their lives in the Synagogue guest house that collapsed in September in Ikotun area of Lagos.
About 81 South Africans reportedly died in the disaster.
TB Joshua “is going to lead the service to commiserate and offer spiritual support,” said SCOAN spokesman Patrick Iwelumor.
“As the chief mourner, there is a need for (Joshua) to connect with these people,” he added.
Joshua is one Nigeria’s most influential and wealthiest pastors whose followers include prominent politicians and business leaders across Africa and around the world.
The Lagos state coroner is carrying out an inquest into the causes of the guest house collapse within the church’s compound.
While Experts have said that the structure was unsound and lacked proper permits, followers of Joshua have insisted the building came down as a result of foul play to destroy the powerful religious leader.
Among the theories advanced by Joshua loyalists is that a plane flying in the area at the time of the collapse dropped an explosive device on the building.
It would be recalled that an expert called by SCOAN lawyers, Beidomu Iguniwei, has testified that the collapse could have been caused by an “infrasonic weapon,” although there appears to be no credible evidence to support that claim.
Testimony at the inquest has dismissed sabotage as a cause, including evidence from aviation officials who said that the air force plane in question was on a routine training mission and had in fact landed before the building collapsed.

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
